Customer Question

I have a leather Egyptian bag, sachetel, purse. Not quite sure what to call. It is highly decorated with colourful front, and etched drawings of pharaoh. I have had it for 40 years and my father was a collector of all things. Is there any way I can send you photo via email for you to view.
Kindest regards

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

This is a souvenir piece. Stamped and colored leather, meant for the tourist market, circa 1950-1970.

The value would be approximately $50-$75.

Please let me know if I can help further.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
